Those still mourning the loss of their googley-eyed childhood pet rock will find mature solace in these dreamy watercolours by Melbourne artist Carmel Seymour. The young lady has been producing delicate paper works since graduating from VCA in 2009, with the most recent delights you see here debuting at Helen Gory last week. 

The geologist's dream shows Seymour's increasingly trademark style: a mixture of self-contained fine detailing and sublime explosions of colour. It's influenced by a recent scholarship she underwent in Iceland – a country whose landscape is, despite misleading namesakes, more famous for being comprised of stone than frozen water.

Beyond this series, entitled "between here and there is better than any other here or there", are many other beautiful pieces with long rambling names. Her best are figurative juxtapositions, such as "If you stare at somebody long enough, eventually you will see yourself", "Old furniture knows something about the past", and "I often think strangers are controlling my thoughts". They're all mystical mouthfuls.
